ABOUT US

The Jessey Chakane Foundation aims to empower young South African women who wish to build their future in male-dominated industries by providing financial assistance in helping them reach for their dreams.

 

Roshan & Gomolemo founded this Foundation in memory of their mother Jessey, shortly after she lost her battle to breast cancer. Ms. Chakane was a successful businesswoman who strongly believed in the power of education and the need to make it accessible for all. Her legacy and passion will live on through the initiatives of this Foundation.

"We believe that no one should be denied the opportunity of wanting to better themselves."
